Description:
Rare Proof 1876 Three-Dollar, One of 45 Struck
1876 PR 64 PCGS. One would think that in our nation's centennial year there would have been a greater demand for proof gold coinage than the 45 pieces that were struck in all denominations from the gold dollar through the double eagle. Suffice to say that $41.50 plus postage (the amount needed to purchase all six denominations) would have bought far more than a pre-washed pair of blue jeans in 1876 and that coin collecting as we know it was still very much in its infancy. The 1876 three-dollar is a rather famous rarity in this series replete with scarce issues, being a proof-only date with the aforementioned mintage of just 45 coins, perhaps two-thirds of which are still around 120 years later. The surfaces on this choice specimen are well mirrored beneath a hint of milky patina. There is a tiny planchet flake to the left of the 3 that should quickly and easily identify this piece in the future. (NGC ID# 28AJ, PCGS# 8040)
